"Peru is fascinating," says Andean artisan Jorge Molina. "We invite you to experience the feel of alpaca wool, legacy of the Incas, of the sun, the wind and the earth, elements that meet the blue Andean sky." In this case, it is the Peruvian desert and its colors that serve as Jorge's inspiration for this superlative ruana created with 100% baby alpaca, the very soft fleece from the first shearing of the season. The shoulders and upper back of the wrap are milk white, but further down that tone combines with an almond shade to create streaks reminiscent of a desert dune landscape. Crimson red along the ruana's borders provides a brilliant contrast and helps accentuate the design's elongated bottom corners.

Beautiful poncho-sweater? but be careful not to get jewelry or a hairbrush caught in it as the knit pulls easily.

"Fair Isle Knit Poncho"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am always worried about sizing, as it varies so much from the U.S.A and Australia. My solution is to purchase One Size or Fits Most. This beautiful soft green, 100% baby alpaca wool poncho/sweater is a nice fit for me. The sleeves are narrow and firm so can be bloused up a little to show-off the pattern, the body is loose (to cover my tummy), and Im just mad about the collar. All positives.

"Exquisite design and fabric"

I am thrilled with this ruana. It is beautifully made with such attention to detail. I love the symbolism of the meander pattern dating back to the Inca and even back to ancient Greece (and before).
